If you're a new person wanting to say hi, someone who is leaving the purpose for some reason or another, or someone who's been on a hiatus and wants to let people know you returned, please post here instead of making a new thread for it.

Hi

I tried CDDA about a year ago but quickly put it on the backburner, mostly due to its high complexity  and me being a roguelike noob . Tried again last week and this time got completely hooked - it all makes sense now.

Extremely happy that I`ve found yet another game (next to DF, Crawl and a few others) that I already know will last me for years. And, congratulations to all the devs/contributors past & present - it`s projects like this one that slowly restore my faith in videogame medium.

Hello, I'm Joshua.
I found out about CDDA through another zombie-themed Roguelike game I happened across, one that the creator abandoned, unfortunately. In my search for something similar, I found CDDA. After playing a bit, I wasn't sure if I was going to stick with it or not. It was far too complex for my understanding, not having played any Roguelikes other than the aforementioned abandoned one. After some fiddling around with some of the features the game had to offer, I started having a bit of fun with it.

A little bit about me: I'm a writer; though not a very good one. I'll occasionally write short stories but poetry is more my forte.
My introduction to zombies in general was the original Dawn of the Dead. It remains one of my all time favorite movies to date.
I love music, although I'm rather picky about what I listen to.

That's basically all there is to know. I'm not a very interesting person. I hope to remain active and get to know you all nonetheless.

Hello, I'm Gabriel.

I found Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead in a random roguelike searching, and was not disapointed.
Initially, in my first attempts to play, I failed miserably, but I was so amazed at the immersion level of this, and that kept me focused on the gaming session.

It taught me some important actions and knowledges, also, many english words that I didn't know.

I'm a 17-year student. I actually live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My hobbies are computer stuff, like programming, But I'm not a good one at this.

I have a small blog about LUA scripts here (http://cs2dscripts.blogspot.com), and a small history here (http://www.fanfictionbr.com/livro.aspx?livro=2242) that I'm developing (in portuguese)

Also, I run a hosting company with a friend here (http://"streemhost.com").

That's all interesting things in my life... =)

Welcome to our forums Gabriel! I hope you enjoy our community!
There is an alternate language section of the forums, but I don't think there is any Brazilian threads though sadly. Though someday I am sure it might get it's own thread and translated version of the game! :D

I haven't been posting much at all and I should have announced a hiatus here, really.

Day job got ramped up again, school semester is getting in the way. I'm just not online here much and I'm pretty much a constant idler in irc. Just want folks to know what happened. I hope this is a hiatus I can come back from come late spring and still find the community I left. Best of luck to all in the meantime. :)

Just thought I'd pop in real quick and say hi. :P

I discovered CataDDA through a youtuber by the name of PlumpHelmetPunk, and just loved the concept of it and had to try it out for myself! I lost about a dozen or more characters already, but I'm currently in the middle of one of my best runs yet and having a blast.

Anyways, I hope to be seeing you around the forums! m.m

Announcing a three month hiatus: 

Starting tonight I will be taking a three month hiatus from the computer/internet, as a personal challenge.  It'll be tough, as I'm a major internet addict. 

See y'all in June!

Hello there!

On-off player here, been playing since 0.1, according to the version numbers at least. Found the game through One F Jef, and left until 0.9, which I've had lots of FUN with. who knew C4 could blow up early by throwing it at a fence?

Yeah make sure to drop the C4 when you set the timer also. I made that mistake and quit playing Cata up until now. Also welcome to the forum, hope you like it here.

So I am back, more or less. This is the plan anyway.

The course I was taking was, while very educational, also horrendously difficult. Had I realized my marks were so bad that I didn't have enough room to improve them before the semester break, I would have dropped it in time to get refunded. As it stands I still owe money for the course despite not getting any credit for it nor last term's half.

Ah well. You win some, you lose some. My campus bus pass is still good until well into April and it's applicable for use as a regular bus pass. Score.

I'll mark when I'm present in irc but I have a lot of other stuff going on in life that isn't school, so I may well still idle a lot. We'll play it by ear and see how things go.

So as it turns out, I'm still doin' lotsa stuff everywhere so I'm on the forums and irc when everyone's like, asleep and stuff.

Might be easier to get in contact with my via forum private messages than irc, for anyone who's actually looking for me or something.

Unrelated, I hope things turn for the better soon, Aerial.

Hi, I'm new here.

<insert general Anonymous Alcoholics "Hi uncle Kat" here>

and 've been playing this game for months. Love it. I also love roleplaying, driving cars and animals. Yes, driving animals. I also love video games, but Cataclysm is one of the best games I've ever played. If I could only wish for something, it would be a fighting system from Dwarf Fortress adventure mode.

Be greeted my fellow survivors!
I am FrogVoice but I also go by Kev so that's that.
I've been playing Cataclysm since quite some time now. But unfortunately I took long breaks from the game which results in me still being a big noob who plays with a 0.5 on Spawn Scaling (pls no judging). Other games I enjoy are for example Dwarf Fortress, DotA 2 or Starbound.
Apart from my passion for videogames I consider myself to be an anime-trashbag and appreciator of most music genres.
I recently recognized how awesome this whole community is and figured that I should try to be a part of it, and here I am now!

Hello, I hope you will have some nice time browsing the forum.

The second hi comes from myself. Not much to tell about, really. I like Cataclysm and play it quite often - the most succesfull character being a nodachi-swinging cyborg with few OP mutations. It got quite boring and so I switched to the last April version. Now I ride around on a ratbike and headshot other people with my revolver or a shotgun. It turns out to be quite badass.

Ok, so I never introduced myself, and I went on a lengthy and unscheduled hiatus so here goes.
I go by Vulnus or RedVulnus pretty much everywhere. I'm relatively new to forum rp and the like but am quite interested in it, and I am more then willing to learn.
Most of what I do in my free time is play games and look around the internet for cool stuff, and Cataclysm dda is one of my favorite games. Even though I still rarely live past day 1. Especially when I get explosives...
Anyway, glad to be back.

After a really long delay, I was able to put together one of my workstations here @ home.
The battle was fierce - two screens and a pretty good adapter were fried, along with an AMD MoBo.
Now I can actually PLAY CataDDA and write about it; maybe even do some work-along with the community.
Altough that test-thingie-P2-lowRAM-needy_RLs_defiant is still an option, just because it's a full-stretched XPSP3/DX9 comput0r.

Call me Jakers.

I enjoy a variety of things, but cataclysm brings a lot of joy to me. I have complex games such as Battlefield 3 but I just can't seem to stop playing a game without proper animations or graphics! So this is why I signed up to this forum, whoever has created this game is godly as it is seriously enjoyable and you can use the best graphics in the world - your imagination.

I also watch a wide variety of shows, including Attack On Titan,
(click to show/hide)
Bear Grills,
(click to show/hide)
Fullmetal Alchemist
(click to show/hide)
My little pony,
(click to show/hide)
and many others.

I come to introduce myself to all with open arms,[but don't actually hug me] and I look forward to meeting everybody! 'What's my profile picture?' you may ask: It's a dubstep playing unicorn. Nuff said.

Sunday morning a family member of mine was hospitalized. They're still there.

Ongoing treatment, we're waiting for some results to come in before further work can be planned/decided on/done, so it's the waiting game. My week has been and is going to continue being upside-down.

I am doing alright! But I'm helping to maintain some semblance of normalcy in the household and taking up a lot of time to do so. On top of hospital paperwork and visits.

I realize I'm not as active as I have been in the past, but - welp. If I go silent, it's for family, not because I've turned into a jumbo jet and crashed into the ocean irretrievably or something. I am okay.

Hallo yonsisac. If I correct you, it will be with the intention of helping and nothing else. Hopefully nobody has to go ballistic haha. Welcome to the forums.


As for myself, medical update: it was my mother, and she has had major (brain) surgery. I am alright. She is alright. My family is alright. She's recovering and more like herself than she has been in a long time. My language/tone right now is coming across as rather emotionally sparse at this time, but it is a part of how I cope. I mean, I know I've yammered about getting sickish when I'm stressed, but that is apparently a social thing. This blew right past that, into get-shit-done territory.

She's quite possibly coming home tomorrow or Tuesday, and we are vigilantly excited for her return. Thank you to those who offered help during this dark and challenging week, knowing we had lifelines we could reach for has helped us as a family to stay steady.

Hey guys, I'm back after a great weekend with friends up in *********, **.  The dad, who is sort of a friend and mentor of mine, helped me sight in my AK.  Turns out there was nothing wrong with the gun, it was the user that was fucking up.  I also got to shoot my Keltec PF9 for the first time which I bought back in December, I finally got to shoot my Winchester SPX 12 gauge for the first time.  It was my last birthday gift from my mom before she passed. 

I also FINALLY got to finish the HALO 4 campaign, using his kids xbox.  It would've taken me forever if his 9 year old hadn't done co-op with me.  I could've done it easily with a mouse & keyboard though.  I find it difficult to use a console controller, but thanks to my friend's kids I'm improving.

Hey Aerial, sorry I haven't been replying to your IRC beeps. I'm just not online for the crazy late-night shifts anymore, my sleep schedule's been shot through. Stupid timezones.

I've been leaving irc logged in to monitor if and when my internet resets or disconnects, I should probably just close the darn thing instead of unintentionally leaving people hanging. My apologies for that too.

I wish you much luck in your life, and better times ahead.

Hey everyone, I starting playing cata:dda a few months ago, awesome game! I just got on here to share my amazing luck. On a new char running down the road at night with a flashlight, I see a single shocker Zed and take him down with my knife. After butchering I find CBM: Facial Distortion, with about a 50% chance to fail I said fudge it and went for the install. This happened:
You screw up the installation.
You do damage to your genetics, causing mutation!
Your fleet footed turns into road runner!
You gain a mutation called Perceptive!
I love this game.

Welcome, Wildbeard.

I've been pretty reclusive lately, just sort of. I dunno. Things are different now.

Okay no, untrue. I know exactly how things are different because of what happened this summer. Life is weird and I'm still recovering from the bitchslap it issued my family. We're all safe. Mom's been getting better every day but there's still a ways to go. I'm sorry I'm not on IRC actively, and never really got on skype like I said I would. I'm barely even in the forums... participating has just gotten to be more than I can manage on a regular basis. I'm exhausted. My perspective has changed, and I am spending most of my energy re-learning how much social obligation I can handle, as well as where my priorities were before, where they are now, and where I want them to be. It feels rude and inappropriate to drop several social connections I was previously maintaining, but it's too much to hold onto everything while I simultaneously sort myself out.

And then I'm back to university tomorrow. Not much has been going on in my life in any literal sense, just. Work and family. A few very close friends so I don't go nutter.

My apologies if my absence came across as anything worrying, frustrating, or disappointing. I understand the position I am in is a potentially problematic one for mental health, and I am taking measures to maintain a support network that is not so large it wears me out more than it helps.  I'd like to promise that I'll come back in time, gradually, as it's probably likely, but I can't fathom that realistically at this point in time. I will try to check the forums but that will probably be the extent of my presence.

I like you folks a lot, as you've given me insights, friendship, and just a lot of new perspectives. I wish you all well in the coming season.

Post I made on page one of this thread regarding my mother being hospitalized.

The event itself back in May taught me a few things about my emotional limits, and the rest of the summer assisting around home and being there during her ongoing recovery has let the whole thing sink in. You learn a lot about life in a hurry, it's gonna take a while to figure out what to do with the lesson.

I'm still recovering psychologically from what happened, less because of any damage done, and more because... hmm. I'm not sure how to describe it? If what I found ok or upsetting fit on a scale of one to ten previously, holding your own parent while they're having a seizure and coming to terms with potential funeral plans by necessity is about a thirty. And then after all that accepting the worst might happen, everything is better than ever. It's a good ending, but it's not a reality I am accustomed to.

I'm taking the time to work out how to adapt for the missing 11-29, and slowly adding back in more activities as I re-learn where I kind of stand on everything.

Hi Folks.  Rogue-likes are the best.  Cataclysm:DDA is a blast.  Decided to stay with static for a while.  After a a few dozen hours I can see that there is so much left to explore that I may never get back to dynamic.  The content is amazing.

Many many thanks for

> the Item Browser! <

Very cool!

Pth - welcome to your new reality.  Life is what happens while you're busy making plans.  Huge Bummer.  But you seem to have a healthy approach.  That approach, along with your work, family & few close friends is a successful formula.  Grab hold and hang on.

Thought I would stop and say hi.

Hi!

I have been playing C-DDA for a while now (with varying success I must add) and thought I would try my hand at contributing to the game.  I studied c++, though most of my practical experience has been in php/sql (on a Harry Potter website XD), and reading the the source it looks like it will be a good place to develop my skills further.  It's a little more advanced than I am used to, but not so advanced as to be incomprehensible.

Looking forward to getting involved.

Well. Lots of stuff is going on in my life and i don't feel particularly well. So i depart. Temporarily? Who knows. I was not very online in this place this months, so...

That's it. I will miss you, really. You were here with me a long time. A lot of you know that i appreciate you a lot. Those of you with problems, keep going. If someone needs to contact me, i guess you can send a message if you find a way. If i see it, i respond. Well... bye.


This is not because of an stupid video i putted here, from wich i got a warning. That was actually fun. Just other stuff. You know...

Well- in an attempt to fix my laptop from fan troubles I blew into the vents. And for some reason that's stopped my fan from spinning. In fear of it overheating and causing too much damage I won't be using it. So. I guess I'll be mostly gone. Until I can fix this problem anyways.

EDIT: fixed it, seemed the fan was clogged with dust, I blew into the vent quite hard and it unclogged it. Got dust all over my face though.

Well, I'm basically on these forums for one thing.

The Rec Room.

There's a tiny problem, however, as you may have heard, the Rec Room is basically dead.

And thus, fellow Cata players, most of us, as you also may have or not heard, are migrating to Iwaku. I basically never use the other forums besides the Bunker and GD, and won't have much time for those. This isn't exactly goodbye, but I am almost never gonna be one and such.

Doesn't stop Cataclysm, this forum, and all you awesome, horrible, wonderfully evil bastards from being the best.

So, my computer said that it needed to restart to install updates. I said OK and restarted my computer.

When I logged back in, I saw a clean, default desktop. I felt a sinking feeling and looked at my files. All gone, reverted to factory condition. I made a call to a local computer store guy. He said that he would take my computer for a few days, and that he might not even be able to recover my files.

I shut down my computer, then moped around for an hour or so, ate lunch, then decided to turn my computer back on so I could say bye to you guys for a few days.

And lo and behold, my desktop was back as it should be, my files are still there, and everything is fine.

So this is a goodbye, then an immediate hello. I'm so glad that my computer isn't dead, and it made me realize how much I depend on my computer. I will make more regular backups, now.

So reading week is coming up and I basically have a class and a half left until relaxation time. At least one confirmed asshole has gone shooting people at parliament. He's dead now, but I have no idea how widespread the news has travelled. Feels like I heard it after a lot of people did this morning. Downtown is still locked down to my knowledge. I'm safe, as is family.

So uh. Barring any more inexplicable horrible happening, I might be here more over the next week.

Yeah.  I'm sure there's some precipitating cause for the shooting, probably doesn't justify much outside the perp's head.  But it'll fuck up Parliament for everyone else; here's hoping Canada is less knee-jerk than the US was/is.

What a totally inconsiderate jagoff that shooter asshole was.

While humour is an appreciated approach to coping, too soon man. One of my coworkers saw the soldier that got gunned down at the war memorial, of all the fucking places. I haven't seen said coworker since. Last I heard, he was seeking counselling to sort himself out again.

It shouldn't have been possible and it's a disappointment that it occurred anyway. On the plus side, we (as a city) don't appear to be freaking out in our reaction to the event, nor did the shooter appear to be working with anyone else. So at least it ends there.

I am learning what "shit happens" means in a much less flippant way. It does suck, but here's something interesting: Next day after the shooting: Parliament's doors were open. Maybe it wasn't the exact day after, but I've seen them last week. Right under the Peace Tower, open to the public. As always.

I don't know if it's a smart move, but it is a ballsy message to send.



Now I'm back to school for the rest of my semester, so I'll be pretty quiet here again. Booooo. Crossing my fingers I can apply for my degree once I've got these done, and just be DONE with university. Yay!

So I sorta took an unexpected hiatus from the forums, whoops! Consider this my goodbye for back then, and my hello for now! Not much has happened since I was last here.

Been fairly active on my Tumblr, been chatting, socializing, plus I started a sort of rehabilitation thingy called travel training.

What's travel training, you ask? Long story short I was in a pretty nasty car accident over 8 years ago and eventually the stress of it all sorta fucked me up to the point where I could only trust my dad to drive me places, but since that's not a viable long-term option, and because I'd need to travel longer distances to get a proper job, I met up with an employability worker in a nearby town, who suggested that I gradually get reacquainted with riding public transport, by travelling short distances on it and then eventually moving further and further out. This also means I may be able to get a part time job in the future that accomodates my other mental disabilities on top of that!

Unfortunately I sorta hit a rough patch this week when I had a nasty flashback, so we're giving it some time before I get back into it, there's no real rush.

Aaand in other news I got a new computer! Say hello to the Lakon (Image is too big for the forum so I'll just link it: http://i.imgur.com/weBNSJT.jpg ) It's a Chillblast "Yogsblast Lite" PC, complete with a Minecrafty skin designed by Duncan from the Yogscast. \o/ It looks nice and it performs like an absolute dream.

Why'd I call it the Lakon? Because I'm a dork and I've also been playing a bunch of Elite: Dangerous' beta while I was absent from here. Lakon is one of the ship manufacturers in Elite: Dangerous, responsible for making heavy-duty transport ships. \o/

Now that that wall of text is out of the way, I just wanna say it's good to be back!

Thought I'd come back and see what's new (came back several days ago, actually). Glad to see a new release out too.

The reasoning behind my absence is kind of hard to explain and I really don't want to get into it here. I had some more personal stuff I had to work out. I'm back now and I've gotten things cleared up. Hopefully I'm able to stick around for a little while longer this time around, because I honestly love this community and I haven't contributed much to it at all. I'll try and change that.

Sorry to disappoint brother, but maybe if I stick my nose into some RPing around here I can make an Unfriendly Jenkins

I've been lurking (on and off of course) since One F Jef's second video about cataclysm. I've never seen the "Bright Days Behind".

Sometimes it can be good for the soul to put the screens down for a while and reconnect with the people around you.

I'll likely be doing this in January myself. I like to have a purge month every now and then where I just go dark on the internet and explore meatspace.

Hello everyone.
I'd like to thank EkarusRyndren for unknowingly introducing me to Cataclysm at least a year ago. His posts about the RMCC on another site piqued my interests.
It's only in the last few months that I've had enough time to put into this game to really enjoy it. Now I can't stop playing it.

Hello I'm hexman.

I discovered this game through the featured-rouglike page on rougebasin. I thought it was a little bit different from the other traditional rouglikes like nethack and angband. Initially it was beyond my comprehension, it seemed a really complicated game, I lost hundreds of times but the complex factor of this game kept me hooked. Then I read up a few guides on the wiki (though they didn't help much), I kept getting killed and after playing it over and over again I started getting good at it. When I got much better and my character was able to stay alive for multiple seasons, I was already hooked. Stopped playing all the other games to give time to this and before I knew it, I was playing 7-10 hours/day, I hadn't played a game so addicting in a while, only minecraft and AC (and GTA) were the games that I played for 8+ hours.

I kept playing till I started getting bored (not because I've done everything this game has to offer but because I played this game for too long). Still I kept playing. I had to stop because of the preboard exams. But it was too late. After the result came, I realized that I had scored miserable marks in most subjects (except Computer & bio), in some I even failed horribly. Had to stop after that. Hadn't played it since but I'll be back after my exams are over. But I'll try to keep a 2 hour bar on my gameplay time.

But still Its a really cool game. Great work devs, never played a rougelike game so awesome.

If I do leave it'll be for when my education starts up again, or new job needs. Not because of drama.

Well, I'm gone. I can't stand for the unecessary censorship going on, but my opinion and that of what is evidently thee majority of the forum goers is being ignored completely.
I've enjoyed the ride, and maybe I'll see you guys in the future on another site.
But for now, I wish everyone the best.

I'm probably gonna be a little bit quiet on these boards for a while, too. I'm gonna chill, finish up my LP (Which will finish whenever my dude dies) and then wait on 0.C. I'm outta things to talk about regarding the Skybreaker backstory, so a break is good, in that regard!)

I should note this is in part to do with the goings-on in the Controversial topics thread, as I feel several people are overreacting to the goings-on in that thread (On both sides, I should note), and with my anxiety issues I really can't handle that, so I'm gonna remove myself from the source of stress until I'm ready to be a more active poster again. (As I said, I won't be leaving! Just very quiet and focusing mostly on the Let's Play. I might pop in the IRC from time to time, too.)

I'm not even joking, the vast majority of people that are throwing fits over this are exactly the people I have my eye on already because they are toxic elements of the community.  Yes that includes you.  So excuse me if I'm not upset about the part of the community that highly values their use of slurs taking their offensive language and ill-informed opinions elsewhere.

I'm just upset because I normally do "low-brow" humor because I think it makes a perfect contrast with what I write. The original Highway wouldn't fly today. That and half the references I make are always on the "redtext" list, because I'm a fan of 80s action movie lines.

But I only came back to see the latest drama, hell I even got my popcorn bowl. I'm happy with SCP and the stupid forum thing we made. As long as I get to write freely and without constraint I'm good. Which I am, just thought the Wilson comment and following Kevin comments to be a tad to strange.

Ok, so less, "deviating into childish insults and utter dickery" and more, "following our rules" on the moderator side.
Seriously, once "changing people's posts" was called out as something that was upsetting people, I listened and backed of from doing that.  The problem is, it seems like the only thing that would make most of the people complaining happy would be to say, "ok, use all the slurs you want and we'll maybe warn you about it, but we're not going to take any real action", and that's just not happening.

I just wanted an explanation for the double-standards in what is censored and what isn't.

(The reason you stated for "dick" not being a slur can be used for "pussy" and "cunt", the former of which has been censored, and the latter likely would if someone said it.)
Title: Re: Coming and Going thread - Say hi, say bye. For new people, hiatuses, departures
Post by: Kevin Granade on March 02, 2015, 06:52:41 AM
No it can't, because "dick" when used as a pejorative term predates the use of "dick" to mean "penis", they're different words.
Similarly "cock" as a pejorative also predates its use as slang for the penis.
The others specifically are referencing female-ness to derive their meaning, and are descended from the words for genitalia. the

There probably are slurs referencing male-ness, and they should be treated similarly, but "dick" and "cock" are not.
Title: Re: Coming and Going thread - Say hi, say bye. For new people, hiatuses, departures
Post by: Pthalocy on March 02, 2015, 07:03:38 AM
What's current use versus the original use, though?

I mean, queer used to mean 'weird' and now it's an umbrella term for some sexual variants? One couldn't reasonably defend a word based on an outdated definition of it. Same as arguing bitch as acceptable due to meaning a female canine. I haven't done my footwork on the current meaning of the word dick, but if I had to guess, its use to mean a literal penis has overtaken a large amount of the original one.



But back to what I wanted to even say: When your need to use a specific flavour of insult is so strong you're willing to argue semantics on a word-per-word basis rather than just play by community rules: maybe reconsider why you're still fighting over this?
Admittedly, Kevin's open "good riddance" attitude is probably not the smoothest one, but that's my opinion and nothing more. I mean it from a looking professional/impartial standpoint. Yeah, it's a forum and the rules are whatever the mods decide, but feeding people's sense of justified anger is just kinda silly. I want these flames to die out so I can get back to enjoying this place.

Who knows, I may even move to Cataclysm 2 when it has a forum.

That's funny, from where I'm standing it looks like the toxic elements are leaving. :D

Dude. You are a mod. It is cool for you to say that as a member of this community. It is not cool for you to say that as a mod. You are supposed to be the impartial ones here. You saying that makes me far, far more uncomfortable as a member of this community than any slur or degradation ever could.

Yes, he was intentionally inflammatory in some ways - I saw that "FUCK YOU THIS ISN'T A SLUR PIC" a couple threads down. Great, warn him as a mod, or ban him if you feel it's warranted, or whatever. Do not, as a mod, which you are and can't change at this point, be a jerk about his decision to leave. Serously. I'm superfuckingdrunk right now and even I realize how totally uncool that was. You are free to express your opinions of an individual as an individual, but you need to realize those opinions do reflect on you as an administrator while making them. I am happy being part of a community with somewhat strict rules, at least in the case of this debate. I am really, really not happy being part of a community where it's ok for the mods to basically tell someone they are worthless because they disagree with them - the proper response would have been "Well, sorry you can't abide by the clearly stated rules", not "yeah well, fuck you, you suck anyway". I was going to say this in regards to your earlier posts (which frankly were close to this), but was too sober to do so, and thought it would take away from the legitimacy of what KA101 is trying to do here (up untill now, none of you guys has publicly backed them up as far as I can see (may be wrong, new here), which probably would have gone a long way in preventing this shit, IMO).

I get it's tense here right now and passions are up, and I agree that those who can't obey the rules are free to leave, but that is seriously so uncool. I'm really fucking cut right now, and even I can see that and express how wrong it is somehwat eloquently and fairly politely, which is something you sir just failed in. You owe that guy a fucking apology. Maybe he owes one too, I'm not the judge here (that's your job) but THAT'S YOUR JOB, and the judge should uphold the laws rationally, not be intentionally rude.

I am brand fucking new here, and have no feelings towards the people leaving or staying despite a slight personal bias towards freedom of speech because the constitution and art and shit (though I must admit many of them were the people who drew me to this place via their stories, which in the end doesn't matter, it's you're forums and I choose to be here. You could say "fuck that shit" and I'd have no legit complaint, and realistically there are still some entertaining, interesting people here who don't take issue with the regulations, and I'm sure more will come). I was perfectly ready to defend your guys' point of view, now that you've all made it clear it is unanimous, before this point, because hey, it's your forums and you are trying to make us better people, misguided or not (people choose to be better people IMO and regulations do not make them see this). As I've expressed both publicly and privately, sexism is bullshit and it's interesting to come to a place that makes you think about it. Provided guidelines are established and (IMO) fiction is left alone for artistic reasons*, I'm cool somewhat supporting what's happening here, because I choose to be here and don't need to be.

Despite minor disagreements with how things are enforced (which I tried to bring up earlier - mostly in regards to artistic value and not having a clear guideline established), I don't disagree with the concept of making this a slur free place. I do have some super fucking big disagreements with the mods being outrightly rude to people who disagree with them. That is bullshit, and you sir, are worse than him for doing so. You have intentionally offended both him and myself by doing so, and you cannot possibly hope to justify your position while you pull that shit.

*KA101, just to be clear, am I forbidden to use offensive terms in bits of fiction or not? If not, I'll try my best to go along with your recommendation of just learning a different way to write (which was a good way to put that), if so, I'll find a different way to write because I really value the people who I've run into here in my short time and would like to keep being able to associate with them. Provided I don't get banned or insulted for pointing out a dick move on the part of someone who should really know better, anyway.

Just so there's a note of it, bubbadoo14 spammed links to his forums at the end of every thread he had started and then locked them in an attempt to "move" them.  I've unlocked all the threads and deleted his spam posts.  I'm going to leave this one here as "This is where I'm going to be now" is extremely on-topic for this thread.  I'm also not going to ban him for the spamming unless he decides to vandalize the forums again.

Duly noted. Also, I agree with ApatheticExcuse's post on the previous page that sniping remarks at people choosing to leave the board isn't a very professional thing to do as an admin. As much as I'm glad to see the back of people who would otherwise mess up a perfectly good forum because "muh freedom of speech", the admins should seek to lead by example in terms of conduct, no matter the reason a person is leaving the boards.

As for myself, I'm sort of in a "Schrodinger's Chaz" state myself right now - lurking and posting little by little for the time being, despite what I said previously. Like I'm poking my head out of the evac shelter doors to see if the coast is clear, really. I will run my LP to its conclusion and then from there... Iunno. I might take a little break, folks might find me chilling out and playing either ToME or UnReal World RPG or other such-like-rogue-like games until I'm good and ready to come back in full force.

No, you don't - I made that clear in the very first line of my little spiel there. But you should realize that doing it in that fashion is pretty inappropriate given your position. I was pissed off at you, and I feel I still managed to convey that, explain my reasons for it, and be fairly reasonable while doing so - and without any personal attacks. I apologies if I was less polite than I could have been or worded any of that poorly - I had a shit time last night and I'm sure some of that leaked in. Edit: I also appologise for calling you a jerk - rereading it all, that was a personal attack. And for implying I would be banned for disagreeing with you - for the record, I don't think you're abusing mod powers or anything like that. That was pretty unfair of me to put out there.

Anyway. I appreciate all the great work you and the other devs have put into this game and the enjoyment it gives me to play it. While I also enjoy many of the people on this forum, I think maybe I should take a bit of a break here too.

you good sir, are a complete and utter asshole of titanic proportions. Seriously? Have fun with your dying forum and toxic community mate.
That's funny, from where I'm standing it looks like the toxic elements are leaving. :D

and me locking all the threads I had made in this forum on a late-night tangent. (Which the moderators soon unlocked/deleted, in a few hours time)


People in the new Utterly Mad forum, like me, have vowed to stay peaceful and just let the argument blow over. Shit happened, that's all that needs to be said.

I'm leaving, I've been playing since Whales, but the community has no use for me. I posted as Cinghiale before this, and some of my ideas were picked up by the devs and run with to a certain extent, however indirectly:

https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/issues/4420

It made me happy. I would contribute my ideas, and try to stimulate discussion about other roguelikes. I would code, but I can't do it, I'm a conceptual person that deals more with people as his job, it's just not possible for me to plug #``~~~--bolian/antimarkov#$# 12 hours a day. I also have money, so I thought what I'd do, to motivate people beyond cowbells, is combine some ideas with cash, and throw up a framework for some fellow travelers who love virulent diseases as a new "end game" disease to threaten high level players, and also stimulate combination of the syndrome/bionic/zombie trait modules. There were great, great ideas, the game is just begging for new diseases, the framework is already there. The first thing I get from the dev when my  offer comes up is "this is shit, we don't need your money."  It was a very hurtful and surprising response, especially since the github is 100% integrated with donations, including the new voting system. How about, "thanks for your support friend, perhaps it would be more useful to go about this this way instead." But the more I thought about it, the more I agreed. The 5-10 odd people that religiously merge and their 100 fans don't need outside support, you've got your own little world and you don't have any need to let fanbase grow.  I thought, overall all, I could strike flint by making people try to rewire systems already in place, as well as motivate a cool dev to invent flesh eating gas. But we'll say goodbye instead!

Honestly I haven't played more than a few hours in the past six months, the game is getting better but it's also plateaued in a certain extent, there is perhaps a limit to the medium. I thought about just deleting this account with "FU" or silence but I've put in enough time into this game where I feel a need to leave a final accounting. I'm not mad, I'm grateful for the good times the game has given me, but this is a wake up call - I have the luxury of a good enough life where I don't have to tolerate good intentions being thrown back in my face. Good luck to you all, may you build the world you seek to build.

For context, here's the Git issue (https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/issues/11462) that prompted this post.  I am The Dev in question, apparently, and I regret that my response came off as harshly as Void Space took it.

For my part, I've been insulted and abused rather a lot over the past few days, and I didn't take kindly to seeing $25 offered for something which, so far as I could tell, hadn't been balance-checked or otherwise received dev attention.  (If there are forum threads discussing super-diseases capable of infecting through Heavy PA and killing inside of an hour, please link me!)
I've received complaints that bounties/kickstarter meant that we were letting folks just buy their way into the game, and for that reason object to a bounty being placed on an idea before we've so much as looked at it.

I have come to the conclusion that I really only come here for a limited number of things: last man posting, Huglahglahg, art threads, and a few other general forum topics.
I am uninterested in joining a new forum that was born entirely out of strife. Meanwhile, things here are very, very quiet.

Leaving here does not help this forum move past what happened, and may encourage others to leave too. I don't know. What I do know is that I am uncomfortable being present for that stretch of the forum's recovery. The temptation to reply to things spoken out of anger came up so much that past week that I have written entire posts, and then hit the back button more often than I have said anything at all. It's still happening, namely with non-moderators. This has left me very, very quiet too.



This is my official hiatus. I do not have a return date planned, but that is because I plan little in advance.

Good luck to each of you.

You know admins, you've done well. You've done well in driving away users who have been here for a lot more than me as well as newer users, like me. You've done well in your war on slurring, where your victory against the non-red menace has got those slurrers outta here. I salute you admins, for you have really done well in making sure that people who are comfortable in playing a game where drugs are smoked, injected, where children are made into punch bags, where fetuses can be consumed to gain more power even where you can kill another tumble user innocent member of the lovely society of the cataclysm that has befallen wherever the hell it takes place, from seeing the word bitch.

Well done, fuckheads.

Last post: It was people pointing fingers at the admins like this, long after a solution to the problem was reached, that has made me decide to leave. I will not be used in your arguments about how the mods have reportedly screwed up. It's people's inability to move on with this that has prompted my decision.

Ahh man, I hate to see you go, Pth, but I understand your reasoning! Like Stopsignal, your art ended up being one of the reasons I came here to the forum in the first place, and it was loads of fun chilling out with you and the others on the DYC thread!

I dunno about myself though - The forum's been a big source of stress and anxiety for me lately, so I'm sticking with my semi-hiatus (i.e. I won't be posting all too actively unless it's about my art or Let's Play stuff). I might be a little active when 0.C is released but right now I can't even seem to play the game itself without burning out quickly - though I doubt that's related to the forum stuff, I just have this habit of playing a game, burning out, then coming back to it some time down the line.

Folks who wanna find me will generally know where to find me, though!

Apart from the disagreement on how to handle slurs on the forums there aparently was some sort of argument in the rec room that i haven t looked into yet.
As a result a dozen people aparently have or plan to leave.

I've definitely settled the ISP issue I've been having for quite some time now; this means you'll be seeing me A LOT more on these forums and what's more important - I'll be able to contribute to .sr translation AT LAST !
Since the HDSPA modem allows for more than desktop connection usage, I'm finally able to work on-the-go (which is the only way for me). I've had a roguelike & indie game site in mind, with my own projects that are well on their way.

Be it as it may, I'm happy to be here once again  -  and just in time for 0.C.
Good riddance!

I, too, had no clue that I was walking into a shitstorm when I posted that link to the ammo vending machine article, nor that I would be the cause of it spreading to the bunker.

Might as well make this official, I'm heading out. I haven't posted much in recent times anyway, because the RP crowd has migrated over to the Utterly Mad forums.

For the record, I think that's a ridiculous name for a forum. Something like "Hibou is the greatest" would work better.

Don't get me wrong, this forum is still a great place with great people, it's just not the place for me.

No hard feelings, and I'll see you guys around.

I've got bored from DDA, not because it was boring but because it was too addictive and it soaked up lot of my time, little was left for other things. Still play it though, for only an hour or so. Forum seems to be a nice place, constantly growing, the game's too is constantly updating (I heard that 0.C was out this month). Will still drop by in a few months to see if anything's updated or not.

Other than that I'm gonna focus on creating my own rougelike game (not for popularity but to test the depth of my knowledge of programming), its a lot harder than it seems, needs a lot of time, motivation and concentration.

Okay, okay, I'm back proper. Maybe. Hopefully.

After an internet upgrade (Fibre optic - friggin' finally) and a good two or three weeks' break from the forums, along with a stable release for 0.C, I'm feeling ready to get back into the swing of things. I may even stream some Cataclysm soon, as I remember one or two folks on the IRC asked me to!

While I'm getting settled back in, here's a work-in-progress of a Patreon reward I'm getting from a cool person!

(http://i.imgur.com/yrAPFDh.jpg)

This has of course inspired me to potentially make a challenge-oriented version of my MothChaz profile where he's equipped with nothing except his boxers (And maybe the hospital tag, if I can figure out how to mod that in as a wearable item for myself!)

Heya folks. I've been here a while, and although I doubt many of you remember or care about my presence, this'll probably be my last post on here.

Community is just too different from what I remember, and I'm pretty much completely burned out on playing C:DDA.

So yeah, see you guys on the flip-side, or no-side I guess.

Well, I don't know for sure how far the community has fallen but surely the community doesn't care unless you've influenced it in a way.

I too don't play dda anymore but still I wander around here to find something of interest. There are very few active forums around right now, been trying hard to find a forum for programming/development. Devshed-Forums was good a year ago and now its falling apart with spammers and noobs flooding it with useless crap, dreamincode I don't like (because of its money = rep policy), others are lying stagnant (or I don't know of them?).

Looking at these forums, it seems to me that once you do something that people like (for example, developing a game), you easily build a community around yourself; Or when you do something influential in an already existing community (be it code-help, moderating, helping fellow members or just plain lurking around) a lot of people get to know you and you gain good friends. Otherwise you're just another wandering vagrant, posting here and there, moving around, no one cares about.

And that's probably okay, people who've done work in the interest of the community deserve that and that is probably not a thing to feel bad about.

Much of what looks like rudeness in forums circles is not intended to give offense. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.

Can't vouch for my activity, I'm picking up work hours left and right after a good friend/coworker formally quit.

It's been long enough though. Let's consider my official hiatus over. I specifically didn't put a return-date on my last one because I couldn't judge if it'd be sooner-versus-later, nor later-versus-never. I admit that was tactically vague. Probably for the best. Turn a new leaf, etc. My CATA avatar can probably do that with his own hair, seems an appropriate metaphor.

My activity on the forums has still been kinda spotty admittedly but that's more because I've been distracted with other games. I've kept a tab open for the boards and I make sure to check in every now and again. I still need to get around to doing a new Let's Play or maybe a stream or something though.

I really should've found and posted here sooner, but there's no time like the present. I found CDDA after trying (and failing) to get into playing Dwarf Fortress, while browsing the internet for more DF stories I came across  Hayden Foster and the Swarm (http://smf.cataclysmdda.com/index.php?topic=3867.0). Which instantly captivated and enamored me with the thought that such a riveting story could be the result of playing a game, then I actually tried it for the first time and failed about as miserably as you'd expect. Came back a couple months later, actually used a guide on the wiki to get started, and now I can reliably build characters that turn into homicidal killing machines like my inspiration.

Well, that was a mouthful. But that's basically it, I hope to continue being active on the forums and in the community for the immediate future. And to anyone I haven't had the pleasure of meeting yet, it's great to meet you all.

I have a sneaking suspicion who at least one of them is, but I won't be able to say for sure. Great to be welcomed back to the forum with mental illness slurs though, glad to see the spamtrolls are as classy as ever.

We know both of them and I've got two names. Doesn't matter who though, really. It's flagrant and stupid. Why can't people take personal problems up personally with the individual in private? This isn't setting an example. It's just a timewaster. Go home UtterlyMad guys, you got better things to do.

Well, if one of them is who I think they are, then I've got no problems cutting ties with them because they pissed me off loooooooong before they pulled this stunt.

But yeah, absolutely foolish, pointless actions on both their parts. I'll be sticking around and I'm gonna see about getting those videos up like I said I would, but SOADS in particular has left a bad taste in my mouth.

Of course! I'm gonna try and be more active if I can - although I'm still planning on sticking to playing 0.C Stable until the new experimental goes on a feature and content lock. That's my usual policy anyway, helps with Let's Plays if I can play a game and not have it update multiple times between recordings, haha!

Welcome back fluffy moth.

Thank you \o/ I need to fluff harder and moth more.

I have poor impulse control, and since your guys mods are fucking dead, im cleaning up the spam. sorry. its kinda hard to be sorry until you do something.

Apologising this late into the debacle is not going to make senpai notice you. You are past the point of being senpai-noticed, senpai has never noticed nor acknowledged you until now, and this one occasion was only to make this point that he is not, and never was, your senpai. Please go away.

I've been in contact with both this past hour, they're voluntarily resigning and cleaning up their own mess. Fuckups happen, best one can do now is smooth things over so we can all move forward.


That means everybody else would have it in their best interests to drop this also. Not just the instigators. I can't enforce that, but I can encourage it. I got quippy in a couple posts responding to this earlier as well, and likewise, I will also stop.

Ah man yeah, I need to chat more with folks on Steam |D I don't use its IM functions all too much save for a couple of regular contacts on there, as well as for joining in on friends' games, but yes.

I just need to get myself into the right mindframe for Cataclysm again and the videos should be fine (Even if they're very short-lived series like they usually are, haha)

I guess it's just a rough time of year for me in general as well, so I'm a little bit more short-tempered, but I've already done a video of Unturned today (It's coming around really well, Nelson's been doing a lot of cool work with it!) and I'm pretty much on a zombie survival kick once more \o/

I have moved an old post by GlyphGryph regarding forum policy.

That means rules of conduct.

Frankly, my difficulty in locating the damn post tells me rules awareness was part of the problem some time ago. It is unfair to enforce a code of conduct if nobody can find it. I hope to rectify this.


Please go Here! (http://smf.cataclysmdda.com/index.php?topic=4850.0) to review it. Please also understand that Glyph's initial post is at this point somewhat dated, and may be edited in the near future for clarity and refinement. I recommend subscribing to this rules thread so you can get immediate word of any changes made, as they pertain to all users and the quality of their time spent here.


I would have posted this to the Announcements forum, but I suspect more people are subscribed to this.

Since I never officially left I guess I'm not technically officially coming back, but I have been absent for quite some time since I focused on the Utterly Mad Forum quite a bit. While I wasn't aware of the recent incident until a while after it happened (and I'm still not quite sure on the details, I don't think I need to be though) I'll apologise on behalf of the forum. Sorry everyone.

ANYWAY ON A MUCH LIGHTER NOTE! Yeah I'm around again, I'm not sure if the majority of people around here will actually remember me and there's a lot of new people around that I don't recognise, so hello I AM THE DARK LORD  to all of you, good to see new names around here.

Some troublemaker appears to have set my autocorrect to change hello to I AM THE DARK LORD, wonderfully comical, I'm going to leave it like that knowing I'll forget about it.

Hey guys, it's me, the weirdo that spends 98% of his time in the Rec Room and kind of got swept away to UtterlyMad a few months ago. I've been posting very sparsely since then, just bits here and there in the development threads.

But now, I'm back! For-realsies this time. I realized just how much I missed the huge, wacky community that lives here and got kinda sad to see that the Rec Room hasn't had any use for quite some time. Hoooopefully I can change that, but if not then I'll be happy to just chill with you guys in the bigger and more active places.

Also, it's really hot over here. It's not a reason why I'm coming back but it's true.

We're discussing just what to do rule-wise to prevent any sort of misunderstanding or future messes, but it is slow-going. It is indeed a topic not to be handled arbitrarily, and the mods are not all of one mind on where any language rules should apply just yet. It's something, though.

In the meantime, welcome back! The game's had some changes during your absence, and wow, new users everywhere!

Hi, I'm jaked. This is often a source of confusion, as I generally go by Alex.
My circles of friends in real life and on the internet are generally exclusive.

I like coding stupid things into games and then watching them collapse under idiocy. Much like a relativistic sedan on a sunny New England day.

I play roguelikes, and can't stop poking my fingers into other people's source code.

I'ma going to call this a non-sequiter, after the previous hello.

I doubt anyone noticed my absence though. I tend to be like that. >.>
For those of you that don't know, my meager contribution was the boxing stuff.
It's been out long enough for some thorough testing and exploitation now I'm sure, so if it's OP/UP, balanced or in need of a tweak or five lemme know.

Anyway, I'm now studying Comp Sci and Artificial Intelligence. Seriously.
My next lecture is going to be about the human brain.
Yeah, I don't even what. This can't be a good idea.
I mean, I can practically smell the SkyNets from here.

Who knows, maybe I'll be able to help with the NPC rework, or help prepare the groundwork at least. ¯\(°_o)/¯

Haha, well, the human brain is the most overcomplicated logic processors we have to model from, makes sense to me that to make an intelligent chunk of code, you need to study the squishy version.

I find it a bit hilarious as a former psych major, since what I really took from it is how little we understand about said squishy logic processors. I wish you all of the luck with Comp Sci, may it make more sense than brains.

Hey everybody, I've been playing this game for about a week now, learning the ropes and I just wanted to say that it is awesome! Thanks for all the hard work everyone has done to get the game into it's current state! I'm playing the 0.C stable release. After a lot of unfortunate deaths to a variety of exciting things I started savescumming to learn the basics but once that got boring I started again with default settings and permadeath and so far I've survived to day 4.

I've played Dwarf Fortress before which helped prepare me for this kind of format. I'm active in an EVE Online alliance but currently this is what I am playing when I need a break from EVE.

Something I wanted to point out ... the "Support Cataclysm (http://en.cataclysmdda.com/pages/17/display)" button on the homepage returns a "this page doesn't exist" page. What's currently the best way to offer financial support for this project? Bounties on unresolved issues? Something else?

Thanks,

Squid

Bounties are the only way we're currently accepting money.  I've poked at various contributors to post bitcoin or paypal or similar account info so they can accept donations, but no one has gotten around to it.  For my part my employer doesn't want me accepting money for outside work, so I shut down my bitcoin server.
I'll take a look at fixing the support page.

Partially because my employer does more or less everything, so everything is considered competition. It's a little web retailer you might have heard of that's named after a little river in South America.

Welcome back!  Probably the biggest new thing is for real actual progress on z-levels.  It's still hard to say how far off the finished feature is, because a lot of the stuff that's left is really tricky, but it is definitely in progress.

why is it any of your bosses business what money you make outside work? Besides of coarse all the standard non-compete stuff. Do you work for government or something where there is worry of split loyalties or bribery or something?
Partially because my employer does more or less everything, so everything is considered competition. It's a little web retailer you might have heard of that's named after a little river in South America.

Hi. Returning after the forum cataclysm. Been here eince around 2013 and wanted to check out what's been happening so far.

Oh WOW. That is understandable then. Still seems like coding is the one thing completely unrelated to Amazon but with that much material passing through I can understand how it can be difficult to keep the books and make sure no one is stealing from the company and selling on the dl. A shame that unscrupulous people ruin stuff for others

Been lurking for a while, guess I should say hello because I intend to get my shit together and start progressing towards better gear and loot and I'll be needing help from the all the DDA pros here.

Hello everyone!
I'm KliPeH and I actually found Cataclysm quite a long time ago (the original mod) but never managed to survive more than a few hours at a time. Recently I decided to give it another serious go and managed to survive for 7 full days before getting cocky, confronting a Shocker and dying. I realized just how truly in-depth the game is and how satisfying successful survival is, and decided that I must put more time into it in order to get to the REAL cool shit.

Hopefully I can git gud and maybe even help some newbies like me in the process.

Welcome!

Don't worry, cata is pretty simple when you get the hang of it. There's relatively few level 1 goblins with a wand of death-- most deaths are caused by laziness or an incautious approach.

Of course, there's always those games where you walk into a hulk or tankbot right around the next corner.
Shocker tip: Don't use metal weapons in melee. When they fire their zapper walk slowly and you should be able to escape without getting paralyzed, although if you've got other problems to think about it gets more tricky. Also shocker brutes are a real bitch in melee if you get paralyzed and stunlocked.

There's the more subtle deaths, but I really wouldn't want to spoil them.

Lost count of my own deaths. Most are suicides due to nope.jpg spawns.
The rest usually involve a broken spine trying to run from a horde while carting a V12 engine somewhere by hand.

Oh, there are two types of Shockers? I was fighting a brute, I assumed it was the regular kind. Shit.

I intended to use a bow to kill him. I damaged him heavily before he was able to get close to me; I forgot you shouldn't use metal weapons to fight shockers, and the only decent melee weapon I had was my makeshift crowbar so I used that.

Died by my own stupidity - as expected.

Yeah DDA is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. In fact its actually easier than most roguelikes I've played. There are no gnome-with-a-wand-of-death deaths or crawl-like OOD spawns (like a dragon on depth 3 or maybe... Sigmund!). I've died mostly by my own stupidity but as of the past few months, I don't think any of my survivors died, mostly because I don't play challenges and I quit on crapped-up spawns (like near a swamp). Though I'd admit that there's a whole lot of crap you need to take care of in DDA, but imo, its easier than most mainstream roguelikes like Nethack or Crawl.

My advice for shockers would be to kill them with a ranged weapon. Since bows are nerfed in 0.C, you'll need good skills and at least the longbow to kill them. I would probably suggest a repeating-crossbow or the pneumatic bolt driver (for those Brute variants). If you trust your melee skills then you can probably take them on in melee, a wooden weapon like quarterstaff or wooden-spear should work but steer clear of any weapons made of conductive materials. If you think you can't win a fight, then use any kind of speed-boosting drug to get the hell out of there, vehicles are good too. Shockers are actually a boon for most of survivors as they've a good chance of giving a bionic so I leave them till I have enough skill to get a working-bionic out of them.

Surviving is difficult: you have been thrown, ill-equipped, into a landscape now riddled with monstrosities of which flesh eating zombies are neither the strangest nor the deadliest.

Yeah, as the wiki says, Zombies are not quite difficult as compared to other (more dangerous) enemies. At most I fear a Hulk or those huge hordes found in large cities, but they're nothing compared to those chicken-walkers or tank-drones that just come out of nowhere (leading to a  fatal encounter). In fact all 'R's (and all '2's of course) should be avoided as they can lead to early deaths of promising survivors.

Shit like GWAWOD appears on the map and I know about it? I'll just quit, there's no sneaking there, that's just Death asking I hand in my life license.

Well, i think i should say hi since i've just returned to the forums for the second time.

I've been lurking around without being logged for a while, just to keep myself updated.

I managed to enroll in an university through a scholarship program offered by the government, in which everyone who is about to graduate from high school is required to attend to an exam which consists of two separate tests, each one with 90 questions, and the second one having an additional essay to be done. The first test happens on a saturday, and the second one happens on a sunday.
The questions contained in the tests are of varied subjects contained within the subjects of study that our high school disciplines teach us.

I managed to get a good grade, so the government allowed me to enroll in a university project called ProUni, in which i luckily managed to get 100% of the price of the disciplines i choose covered. Still having to pay for transport though. It takes me one hour to get to university with a van, and another 1 hour and 30 minutes to return home.

Also, i'm doing computer science, second semester already.
That explains why i've been so absent, hopefully.

WELL HOLY SHIT IN A SHINGLE! It's been a year hasn't it.

In order to not waste time, I moved, I'm not the emotional wreck I was previously, I've actually moved onto projects now and finally managed to create a damn Youtube channel with content on it and I'm writing scripts, and trying to figure out coding to do... something. I still have no clue.

Across the pond into NoMansForum (AKA:Utterly Mad from the split) has become more akin to Facebook, where the usual goingons of shit posting and chatting have occurred.

Along with that I finally moved out of New Mexico! Thank Christ, I now live near Austin, TX. The quality of life here has vastly improved, school is a lot better, I've made a nice group of friends, and I've been the happiest I've been in a long time. For once, things are looking great...

Well great as things can be with ISIS, the current Presidential candidates, Russia about ready to take over the world, economic collapse on the rise, and me about to enter said world.

But hey I'm being optimistic, I'm giving us at least a decade before the shit really hits the fan.

Hi Survivors,

 I have played cataclysm for roughly a year now and I am really impressed at the improvements still going into this game. I haven't crawled much on the forums until recently. I tried the new soundpack and haven't put this game down in 3 months. Also this community is awesome, glad to be a part of it.


I would like to contribute and help in some way:

  I have semi decent art skills. Chezzo's tileset really inspired me to contribute. I have no idea where to begin if i wanted to help. What does this game need most as far as art/drawings/pictures are concerned? Tile sets seem aplenty...Plus Chezzo has a solid tileset. I could make my own but I believe it wouldn't help the game progress much. Do we need ads? A Comic Book? Where do I begin? I live in the region this game is located and I can take tons of pictures(If we need them).

 Also down the line I would like to make a mod to give the game a more: "Walking Dead" meets "Dayz" feel to it. I usually play with mods to tone down the difficulty a bit and get rid of 'fallout' weapons. Looking to get rid of CBM's and anything robotic, add classes etc. Does starting a mod like this sound like a lot of work?

 I used to create NPCs and Dungeons for LPC/MUD/MOO environments, is this game structure similar? I see python and .json thrown around a lot, Do I need to brush up on some python?


Thanks in advance for any help. I'm probably leaving out a ton of questions I've been thinking of but lets start with that.

Post by: Malkeus on January 16, 2016, 05:49:29 AM
.json are simply structured text files. Modding can be done with LUA scripting or .json editing. The vast majority of mods are using .json. Open up some of the .json files in the data/mods directory in any text editor (I suggest notepad++ for it's highlighting abilitites) to start getting a feel  for the structure. Blacklist mods (removing particular items) are as easy as adding the item's id to a list, examine the No_*** mods for examples. The core game items are in data/json.

Lua scripting requires a bit more knowledge (or google search abilities), but potentially has a lot more power than simply editing json files. There are a lot of predefined classes in lua/class_definitions.lua (open in a text editor). An example command which can be used in the game (debug menu->lua console) is map:place_npc(60,60,"guard"). Making a file called main.lua for your mod will let you add scripts that run along with your mod (look at doc/sample_mods/elf_mod for an example). The line: function MOD.on_day_passed() is an lua_hook in the c++ code which is triggered every night at midnight. You can add your own lua hooks by inserting the appropriate lines into the repository on github. But even without adding your own hooks, you can do a lot with what is available already.

The ultimate form of modding is adding content to the github repository. There are several guides for getting starting, here is a link to contributing file in the repository: https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md .

The tilesets guys could always use some additional tiles, I know chezzo has been making noises about making tiles for the mods, I'm sure he wouldn't turn down help. The new iso tilesets are still being developed as well.

Welcome to the community and I look forward to seeing you around. If you have any questions feel free to pm me or drop a post here in the forums. May the rng be forever in your favor. ;)

stick around long enough you'll find you kind get rid of Cata anymore because any time it starts to get "boring" you find out some brand new Super exciting feature is out and ready.... or 3 or 4 of them, and you just HAVE to get back on and play some more so you can see them in action. Then when you do you find out about 2 or 3 more things you didin't know about like a newly upgraded UI system/ display or something that just makes the entire play that much more beautiful. This game Updates faster than you can possibly play it, and if you stop to think about it, that is REALLY impressive.

Well, I decided to poke my head back in here after what feels like an eternity. Spent some quality time with an incredibly toxic, idiotic, and flagrantly offensive community that I've grown to love. (SS13 Hippie Station community, to be specific.) Which, by comparison this place doesn't seem so bad, and I'm ready to dive back into one of my favorite games out there after around a year or more away from it.

So, yeah. How's it been going?

Alright. I've wanted to try and talk to you about things for a while. Without any whining or snarking on my part. I'd been giving myself time to calm down, and get over the things that set me off last time. I'd been holding off on doing so because I was afraid that attempting to would just piss you off. So I kept giving it time.

There were things over on Github that drew me back into posting comments there. At first just a few things where I was clarifying mistakes made in prior PRs by me, or other instances of providing context. when I saw those weren't being deleted, I took that as a good sign.

When we were at the point of discussing other issues and PRs, and both of us doing so politely in the process, I was tempted to ask you about this. But again, I thought that making a point of discussing that would make things worse.

At some point I had the stupid idea of just submitting a PR instead of drawing attention to previous bad blood between us, and testing what your reaction would be.

There's no talking to be done, you already used up your second, third, fourth, and fifth chances, we're done, forever.
The only reason you aren't formally banned from the repo is Github makes it a hassle to do so for the type of repository we're using.

That's it. I'm done. I've been polite. I've also been pissed off. Right now I'm a lot of the latter. I've had enough of the two of us being at each other's throats. At least I've been able to admit to my half of that.

It was not "just small", and it's not going away.  We already had a discussion about it, and a second chance, and another discussion etc as mentioned where Random_dragon quoted me.

There has been a consistent pattern of Random_dragon criticizing everything in sight, even when there was no problem, and frequently in areas of github or the forums where it was completely unrelated to the topic at hand.  He gets angry and combative when he's given feedback, and has called me a liar on multiple occasions.  Contributor-wise he has consistently overreached what he can get working, relies on the other contributors to fix his problems, and refuses to check his own work as needed, with the end result of getting other contributors to do a large part of the work for features he wants, which wastes everyone's time.

In short, he's a consistent source of drama, negativity, and needless work; and I came to the conclusion that he wasn't going to change his behavior (this has been ongoing for months), so I decided I can't work with him, at first by not engaging in discussion with him (because he'd turn everything into an argument, call me a liar, etc), and later by telling him he is no longer welcome to contribute to the project.

I don't think any of this is malicious, which is what has made it drag out so far, but that doesn't change the fact that I can't work with him.

To be honest, I don't know why I'm bothering to do this. But I'm going to point out some additional context, regarding the fact that this has been going on for months.

I'm not going to sugar-coat it, you've really been getting on my nerves recently, and I've been unnecessarily harsh in response.

The below is me trying to clear the air, not attack you.  These are things you've done that bother me, but in the second case you aren't actually doing anything wrong.

The main thing was the multiple postings about the farm tools PR, I had put something like 8 hours into fixing someone else's PR because they weren't up to doing it right, I make one mistake, and you jumped all over me about it.  That wasn't the first time though, it doesn't matter if you're critical or poke fun at yourself, what you say to or especially about other people is all that anyone is going to notice.
Also you have a habit of championing suggestions that you don't seem to have thought through very much, posting PRs for things with the only rationale being "someone asked for this", or in the case of the "psycopath" thing, supporting an issue that literally had no stated rationale in support of it, just an opinion.

With that aired, I'd like to also say that I really appreciate most of what you're doing.  You're helpful to people on the forums, I really like your tank mod and a lot of the survival stuff you're doing, integrating Blazemod stuff, and many other things.  I really hope you stick around, and for my part I'll try and clear up my case of "sandy britches" I seem to have picked up.

This is roughly the earliest point at which things started falling apart.

Sooooo ... just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for the great work that the contributors have put into this game.

I'm a new player, basically just started a few weeks back and this game has blown my mind, the sheer depth of it and it's so damn fun. Ah and in a few weeks I just barely scratched the surface ... This is amazing, only a few games have ever made dying so much fun!

By the way, I noticed the support link on the main page is not working, digging around I did see that there is a donating to contributors thread in one of the forums, seems only a few entries there though and rather difficult to pin point just a person considering this scope. Is there any way to donate to the overall project for the people that want to give something back and help out?

Right now I think the only way to "donate" is to put a bounty on a feature you want in the game on github. This is due to Kevin and possibly some of the others having a "no outside income for coding" in their work contract. As such everything they do is freely done, despite each of them successfully pulling of the work of 10 meth-ed up monkeys keyboard mashing to write Shakespeare. Or perhaps I should say, turning that keyboard mashing INTO Shakespear.

Anyways, the lead guys (and girls) do this freely on the side, and moderate these forums. CDDA is free-sourced crowd-sourced game of awesomeness that shows as a glaring example of how the real world should probably work somehow. Not sure how that would work. But the community is great, and any obnoxious, harmful people are quickly turned away.

There really is a lot of lore going on behind the scenes, but the game leaves it up to you to find through NPC's and flyers/newspapers and other random paper trash throughout the world among other things.

If you really want to get involved write up some code, or json a new thing you think the game needs. Then submit it to someone and if Kevin and co. think it fits well enough it'll get mainlined. Alternatively you can make your own mod with lots of additions and get that mainlined, or just let others turn it on/off at will.

If you ever need help, check out the tips & tricks thread. Most times of the day you will probably have to wait a maximum of 1 hour. Same goes for most of the forum really.

There's a (short, only two people) list of contributors with donation methods here: http://smf.cataclysmdda.com/index.php?topic=11783.0 or as Litpunk mentions you can open a bounty on bountysource.
I'm personally not interested in accepting donations right now, and I'm not taking donations on behalf of the project because we don't have anything to spend it on.  If you're a contributor and want to put your donation info out, PM me and I'll put it in the above thread along with a blurb about what you've contributed.

Kevin banned one of the devs that did a lot of really good stuff, and yet you banned him from contributing. Great job, I hope you and your lackeys ruin this game further. I have two tips: 1. Make a god dammed end game and 2. Get off of your high horse. Now I'm going to go and never look back.

eh.... I mean I know, and have seen some of what it is based on. But that is hardly what the community is ABOUT. Any creative community working together to make something is GOING to have disagreements, hell any group brought together for long enough is bound to, but cesspool is a bit strong. Personally I would consider it a fairly well maintained and regulated community. Obviously that is going to result in SOME problems, though all in all, it negates more than it creates by doing it the way it is. I just don't get how he can be so angry about it when random was so regretfully sullen but forthright and matter of fact about it.

Jumping Jesus on a riding lawnmower, things have changed since I last came around, though I see some familiar names floating around. I didn't know this was actually the same forum as original Cataclysm, so it's a pleasant surprise having my original avatar.

ANYWAY

Holy cow. There's so much new content, I don't even know where to start. I'm back to not being able to get past day 1, lol. That integrated mod list is awesome.

So what're everyone's favorite features? Best mods? Most interesting ways to start the game? I'm gradually getting back into it, but I wanna mess with some of the game changers. I left off around when vehicles were officially implemented and the defense mode was just added.

Ahh... It's good to be back.

If anyone needs some more detail:

I notice random_dragon (chaosvolt) had stopped his updates in the announcement thread, so I started researching around as to why. Kevin Granade banned him from making changes to Cataclysm via the GitHub repo, I took Kevin's explanation (here (http://smf.cataclysmdda.com/index.php?topic=4875.msg268586#msg268586)) as the complete reason why random_dragon was banned. But I didn't assume anything as I've known ol' Kev to overreact.

I looked around the repo a bit and, tl;dr: The specific incidents Kevin references went down almost as he describes, but after going through random_dragon request history I can't find evidence of the hostility, combativeness or general poor attitude which Kevin describes - you can look through random_dragon's history here (https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aclosed+author%3Achaosvolt). This request (https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/pull/14959) was pretty convincing - I mean Kev's right in the assessment that random_dragon overreached in this instance and errs on the side of scatterbrained. But otherwise you can see how often other users come in to help him out and how at no point does he lash out in any way.

Plus also the b& thread: https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/pull/15203.
Quote from: Kev
This latest temper tantrum is the last straw
Yeah unless there's some private convo going on, random_dragon is almost as far away from throwing a tantrum as you can reasonably get. I'm actually almost certain Kevin's deleted some of it, because his reply is almost comical - in which case I wish he'd left the exchange there for posterity.

Ah well, I can't unban him - apparently CDDA is Kev's project (actually have to find where I saw him say that but I need to eat breakfast). Regardless, I'm disappointed we lost a contributor.

That just means you borrowed someone else's dirty laundry, I'm not sure if that makes it better or worse.

Yeah unless there's some private convo going on
A private conversation between two people on the internet? unpossible!  Yes, there were private discussions, and no, I have no interest in posting them. This was a series of conversations that spanned months both in public and in private, at the end of which I came to the conclusion that there was going to continue to be constant conflict with no resolution in sight, and that I wasn't going to subject myself to it any further. 
BTW, if you feel like capturing the full context, try https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/issues?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=commenter%3Achaosvolt+ as well, since a lot of the misbehavior was around kibitzing unrelated issues.
As a user, I would have simply used some kind of ignore feature and that would have been the end of it (github does have one), but as the project owner I don't have that option, I can't simply not review someone's pull requests or issues, and I can't ignore their comments on other people's PRs and issues.  I spent about a month trying to "tune him out", but it didn't work.  Then I came to the realization that it was not going to change, and that the only way it was going to stop was if I either quit the project myself (fat chance) or if I banned chaosvolt.  I chose the latter option.

Random_dragon went peacefully, said his goodbyes, and apologized. While I can understand, and miss random myself. It's hard to find Kev "guilty" or unreasonable in any way when random was more or less in agreement to the decision. (with a heavy lean towards more)

Random definitely was saddened by the decision, but my impression was that he saw it coming and couldn't fault Kev in any way.

Hello, and thanks for the greetings! I don't have a side in the argument, i've just decided to join this community recently.

I found Cataclysm: DDA a few years back while on a search for a survival/sims-ish game. I had been toying with the idea of merging fallout into the sims, but i've have decided to abandon those plans in favor of combining some of my ideas into a mod for Cataclysm: DDA instead (this will be my first serious attempt to contribute to the development of any software really, so progress may be slow).

Modding is very simple once you learn what things mean in the json files. If you need help just reverse engineer some other mods and ask for help here.

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for the advice, Noctifer. So far, I've been editing .JSON files copied from the base game, but I
plan to gain enough skill to generate my own. Eventually, I plan to get enough skill to become a developer.

And, rather belatedly...yes, there were private discussions. This had gone back a long time, and I fucked up repeatedly.

I admit that. The only thing that made it so damn...annoying was that as much as I've admitted my fuckups, there's never been any acknowledgement on Kevin's part that he contributed to this clusterfuck. This long-running problem was not entirely unprovoked. There was a context behind it, both bad attitude on my part and on Kevin's.

Hi
I download cataclysm around a year ago and I found it quite confusing, the ascii symbols didn't help.
I redownloaded it and gave it another try, this time is tile sets and stuff, after a week of dying a lot(fun) I gotten the hang of this game. Sort of.

I will have to go on a hiatus for ~2 months. I have just acquired a job that requires me to get a drivers license in 30 say...I have two certification exams coming up and have to learn the reins of said job. I will come here whenever I can but much less often. For those that care I will also have to put development of my mod during that time. If a mod breaking mod occurs I will try to fix it but It might take days. So that is that i suppose.

Hi, I'm new. Probably clocked... 40ish hours over four days? Something absurd like that. And boy am I glad that there's a bunch of information threads, because I need them.

(I actually tried to join the Reddit first, against my better judgement, but they have a minimum account age to post in the Cataclysm:DDA subreddit... So that didn't work. Though I can understand the reason, and am not really complaining- it was just a bit disappointing.)

I am enjoying a soft return to the forums. Not sure how active I'll be; but!

It is a start. I needed the break, for sure.

Hello, all! I have no idea if I have much in the way of moderator powers (I don't think I had them set properly last time. That, or I was stressed out enough to be rendered incapable of figuring them out. Shrug), but for now, hellos are about all I can handle.

Annnnd that's because I am still on vacation in Utah, just south of Salt Lake city! WOO! I normally live up in Ottawa. I've finally gotten up the chutzpah to fly here and meet some beloved friends, and it is only doing me good. Learning to literally fly solo, as well as the relationship building. I fly home on Tuesday, arriving late at night.

I fully expect my boss to be a derphead and have me schedulled for an extra-long shift Wednesday morning. Who knows? I ain't messaging him from here just to find out crap I don't wanna think about on holiday! It costs me money out here! I'm not paying a defunct Canadian penny just to ask when I make money next. Heh.

Depending on how much downtime I suffer at the airport, CDDA may well help me pass the time.

It is good to visit this forum again.

see: life troubleshooting section 8.4.3
Vehicle troubleshooting:
No vehichle trouble is classified as a "little" problem No matter how small a problem it may actually be.
Reasons for this include, but are not limited to:
-satisfying broad solution statements specs that do not include the explicit use of duct tape (Also see: _Duct tape unsolvables_ [error, link not found])

-getting more credit for solving the "car trouble" (Also See: domestic political jockeying, politics)

-the fact that little problems quickly network with other problems to become massive problems when complex or interconnected systems are involved (Also see: Human body, organics, machinery, code & programming)

Hi, I'm new to the forum, but not new to Cata: Been playing it off and on for a few years now, ever since one of my friends showed me builds in the long ago. I am a gun dork and music buff, the first being obvious I suppose since my first post was correcting someone on how an Uzi operates. So, uh, yeah, that's my thing. Hi everyone!

I keep on forgetting to sign in and check out what's new. Interests have moved on, and the fact every time I take a peek at this there's more PM's in my inbox about endless spammers is just dampening any sense of fun. I think I would rather not moderate.

This isn't a complete hiatus but I'm really not around very much either, so why pretend like I'm here? Apologies to anyone bummed to see me 'go', but I've been gone-ish for months anyway. I like you folks a lot! And this bums me out a bit. Game discussion just ain't doin' it for me. Please take care, as always.

Aloe there~ I'm new to the forums but not new to Cayaclysm DDA. I've been playing it for a few years now-- on and off, and am quite fond of the game. I've idly browsed the forums for long enough that I felt I might as well make an account to participate.

Even though I know the mechanics fairly well, I'm not a minmaxer or anything like that. I don't mind talking strategy or anything, but I tend to approach things from a slightly more in-character perspective and find that sort of thing the most fun part of the game along with the customization, building, and the wide variety of... unorthodox solutions to various issues the game offers.

I'm fond of tea, oversized sweaters, cuddles, and zombie genocide.

Taking a break from CDDA for a bit (I'll still forum, occasionally) to improve my strength and unarmed IRL (read: start boxing again, but only on my own with nobody to spar with bc no one's interested in learning self-defense around here, and the only gym they have is owned by a con-artist who preaches, the "Death-Touch"). Also, trying to prioritize my studies over games for a bit, but only til I'm able to coast for the rest of the semester.

Edit: to be fair, there are some gyms, just not close enough (down south there's at least 30 mins of highway before anything important) and that one Bruce Lee bastard really got me off of gym-learning.

Edit 2: to end my somewhat-rant on a lighter note: sunshine! Rainbows! A few of my favorite things! Cue Sound of Music!

You looked through the forum ; you should know that most of us won't bite ;) we even praise stick figures, if its funny or true to the game.

Hi! I'm keyspace. I've been told to post here (and rightfully so).

I'm an amateur programmer, making most noise on github (as @keyspace). Also on IRC (keyspace) and Reddit (/u/keyspace-1). I find it hard to follow the linear structure of forums, so you won't be seeing me much.

Been playing C:DDA since 0.B or so and like it a lot. Switched to experimentals a few months ago and been playing that since. (Actually, a branch on top of git master with my proposed fixes merged.)

Lol no
Even if there was such a thing as the Death-Touch (Dimmak, the kung-fu-related thing that was popularized back in the day) that can be applied practically, the con-artist trainer bastard definitely didn't know it. So no, I didn't. I'm sticking to good old-fashioned fisticuffs for now, maybe add a little BJJ or wrestling to my arsenal further down the road.

Hi, so, recently I found this game, and I really like it ( Even that I die in less than a day. Still fun. ). Most of my time I am: Trying out Linux Distros ( Antergos on PC, Other such as Fedora, Arch inside VirtualBox.), playing some games ( Now mostly C:DDA ), reading manga and, from time to time - Doing some vector graphics. It would be really nice to see C:DDA on Android.

I haven't played any games bc I killed my laptop by doing a clean install of windows 7 ultimate. I can't box anymore, despite it being the reason for my absence because my stepdad's suddenly too busy to pick me up from the gym, I broke my guitar, and my girlfriend broke up with me. I got a fish tho.

well I swung by again briefly. So hi agian. Though I fear it will be a while till I get to pop in again. My internet has fallen apart. replacing the modem seemd to fix it but I am thinking now that it is another filtering issue. We are looking to switch to charter but apparently they aren't available yet, despite having torn up the right-of-way through our neighborhood.

All our home phones are filtered now but that doesn't seem to keep the modem from re crashing and going into 24-7 trying to reboot and failing mode after the first hour or so. My only guess at this point is that one of the filters are failing. though we went a couple years without filters before we had this problem the first time.

Unfortunately all the mucking around with the modem has factory reset it again I guess, and I didn't write down the ATT masterpasword for the account and stuff despite thinking that I did when I condensed our plethora of accounts into one -_-

so yeah,


tldr; my internet is trash right now, and not going to be running for the foreseeable future. I only got this out because in a hotel room saying hello to the sweet sweet internet for this brief stint. So, Hi. Bye. hope to see yall again sooner than later.

I'm back for a moment.
I had to take a break mostly because of my master's thesis. Had to finish it (last chance, extended term etc.) and I wanted to avoid any stressful distractions.
I'll probably (I hope) be defending it by the end of June. Until then, I'll avoid getting too much into DDA stuff, because getting into arguments about video game features won't help me re-learn all that CS material I need to have memorized for defense.
And I can't just not argue. When I sound like a dick, most of the time it's just because I care, not because it's personal/fun to shittalk/etc.

I know I left it all in preparation for 0.D - sorry - but important RL stuff has to take priority.
If I'm really needed for something, I check e-mail regularly.

I got a message that someone is impersonating me on discord.
I'm not active on discord, have only been on IRC a couple of times, my steam name is totally different from my name here and so on.
If someone is claiming to be me outside this forum, e-mail or github, it's most likely not me. Especially if it's in a game that doesn't run on 10 year old toasters.

I started playing right around the same time I registered for this forum, give or take. I have really been enjoying the game and the chance to browse here, reddit, and github as well and see all the great ideas and see the game evolve, even in the short time I've been playing. May luck be on your side fellow survivors!

Thanks! Yeah I've kinda hinted at being a new player in a few posts, didn't realize there was an introduction thread... better late than never I guess :).

Oh and Vernon is my IRL name.

Well, its not like this thread is an official welcome thread, more just a place for people to keep other regulars from worrying about them when they go missing for a while.

Hi forum!

I likewise did not know there was an introduction thread, I'm new here (this should be my fourth post) but I have been playing Cata DDA for a year or two now, I never thought of joining the forum though (I'm pretty shy) but about three months ago I thought "you know what I will join!", but then every time I tried I got an error ; _ ; , Until two days ago when, trying yet again it worked! :D.

I don't know if whatever was the problem was fixed or not, or if the Elder gods just took pity on me. whatever the case I'm glad I can be part of this community now (even if I don't contribute much ^^ ; (or at all º_º; ) ).

^.^ I feel like I only play the game at this point to validate staying in the community :P
Kevin and the rest of the team work hard to make sure rowdy and aggressive people don't stay long.
